(P/B) THE HELL-FIRE CLUBS
SEX, SATANISM AND SECRET SOCIETIES
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0592

The Hell-Fire Clubs scandalized eighteenth-century English society. Rumors of their orgies, recruitment of prostitutes, extensive libraries of erotica, extreme rituals, and initiation ceremonies circulated widely at the time, only to become more sensational as generations passed. This thoroughly researched book sets aside the exaggerated gossip about the secret Hell-Fire Clubs and brings to light the first accurate portrait of their membership (including John Wilkes, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the Prince of Wales), beliefs, activ...

(H/B) OF FEAR AND STRANGERS
A HISTORY OF XENOPHOBIA
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0722

Over the last few years, it has been impossible to ignore the steady resurgence of xenophobia. The European migrant crisis and immigration from Central America to the United States have placed Western advocates of globalization on the defensive, and a 'New Xenophobia' seems to have emerged out of nowhere. In this fascinating study, George Makari traces the history of xenophobia from its origins to the present day. Often perceived as an ancient word for a timeless problem, 'xenophobia' was in fact only coined a century ago, tied to heated a...

A HISTORY OF THE FIRST ARAB-ISRAELI WAR
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0595

This history of the foundational war in the Arab-Israeli conflict is groundbreaking, objective, and deeply revisionist. A riveting account of the military engagements, it also focuses on the war's political dimensions. Benny Morris probes the motives and aims of the protagonists on the basis of newly opened Israeli and Western documentation. The Arab side - where the archives are still closed - is illuminated with the help of intelligence and diplomatic materials. Morris stresses the jihadi character of the two-stage Arab assault on the Je...

Long considered lost beyond recall, the architecture of ancient Alexandria has until now remained mysterious.

Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0704

Winner of the 2018 Yale Series of Younger Poets prize How can a search for self-knowledge reveal art as a site of community? Yanyi's arresting and straightforward poems weave experiences of immigration as a Chinese American, of racism, of mental wellness, and of gender from a queer and trans perspective. Between the contrast of high lyric and direct prose poems, Yanyi invites the reader to consider how to speak with multiple identities through trauma, transition, and ordinary life. These poems constitute an artifact of a groundbreaking and...

(P/B) MEDIAEVAL GREECE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0708

The history of Greece between the collapse of the Roman Empire and the birth of the modern Greek state is for most people an historical blank. Specialist studies are not lacking, but unlike the other Mediterranean lands that have been the subject of many recent books, there has been no general history of mediaeval Greece published in English since 1908. This book is an attempt to fill the gap. The history of Greece in this period offers a long series of human dramas played out among clashes and contrasts between races, cultures, and religi...

A magnificently illustrated showcase of works by artists in Paris at the dawn of the 20th century In Paris at the turn of the 20th century, an artistic revolution was underway.

DADA'S WOMEN
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0473

The European Dada movement of the early 20th century has long been regarded as a male preserve, one in which women have been relegated to footnotes or mentioned only as the wives, girlfriends, or sisters of Dada men. This fascinating book challenges that assumption, focusing on the creative contributions made to Dada by five pivotal European women. Ruth Hemus establishes the ways in which Emmy Hennings and Sophie Taeuber in Zurich, Hannah Ho"ch in Berlin, and Suzanne Duchamp and Ce'line Arnauld in Paris made important interventions across ...

(P/B) THE COMPLETE POEMS OF JOHN WILMOT, EARL OF ROCHESTER
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0313

John Wilmot, the notorious Earl of Rochester, was the darling of the polished, profligate court of Charles II. One of the finest poets of the Restoration, patron to important playwrights, model for countless witty young rakes in Restoration comedies, he lived a full but short life, dying in 1680 (with a dramatic deathbed renunciation of his atheism) at the age of 33. This edition of Rochester's poetry is annotated and introduced by David M. Vieth. Rochester had many admirers: Graham Greene wrote "Lord Rochester's Monkey"; Daniel Defoe quot...
